Also, that's our Kunstmuseum thread on POTDB! Oh god. Can my night get any better? A postwhorehouse record here and postwhorehouse history there ...
Brilliant. I might have to do some more reading before I go to sleep.

I'm probably going to be less inclined to post a lot somewhere else. Although my next wishful international trip is Melbourne, so that may be no better than continuing to post.

It would be nice to be able to have more flexibility with word counts. Especially with two essay papers. Last semester I had to write two 2,500 word essays. The first one I struggled to about 2,300 words (and got a B+, I think), and the next one I had to fight to stay below 2,700 words. If they'd asked for 5,000 words in essays I'd have managed even better marks, I'm sure.

Your reflective essays actually sound useful.
Oh, wow, you've stuff due already? I've nothing due until late September.

For me, the word count issue is very dependent on how much I give a shit. If I don't care, merely getting to 1,000 words is the definition of tedious. But when I am really into the material, I could write a whole fucking book. I imagine that's true for a lot of people, really. My Kiwi history stuff? I have this draft essay, just exploring possibilities. It has 1,000 words simply outlining the contrary case and placing the topic in context! I wrote it off the top of my head in half an hour one night when the essay I was meant to be writing was too dull to focus on.

I think we need to print the entire thread and sell it in a hard cover commemorative booklet.
We still must do this.

The thread is very much reminding me that this place really misses Vazza. It's just not the same without her.

I wrote it off the top of my head in half an hour one night when the essay I was meant to be writing was too dull to focus on.
It's only (only!) about 20% of the overall mark though, and they don't seem to expect much of us. I'll also have a 3000 word essay due in about three weeks, but that's because of the topic I chose and when it falls in the curriculum.

I find the order of my getting a decent word count relies on, in this order:

1) How much I understand what I'm talking about
2) How much I care about what I'm writing
3) How much research I've done

If I know what I'm talking about I can write a heap without research. But if I've no idea what I'm on about, all of the research in the world won't help me.

Yeah, post on the postwhorehouse, or hang out with the postwhores ...

I can imagine that if you visited my place, we'd both just end up posting on the thread. Because, you know, we aren't #1 and #2 here for nothing.

Starting to wind down for bed. Have to go to a lecture tomorrow because it covers stuff for a presentation and essay I must do that is worth 50% of my mark in one of my papers.

Hell yes. And make the Kunstmuseum t-shirts. I want one for every day of the week.
I randomly clicked onto Vazza trying to set me up with one of her friends

I want at least one t-shirt for each day of the week, and spares to carry with me.
